Stop by to see why we are rated as the Top Karate School in Phoenix.

Professor Flo Teule, PhD (1st dan) trains in karate with Dan Graffius (2nd dan)
Karate, Kobudo, Self-Defense and Samurai Arts for Adults and the Family at 60 W. Baseline Road. At the corner of Mesa, Gilbert and Chandler.

 Karate and Kobudo have been inseparable since the King Shoshin of Okinawa outlawed bladed
weapons in the 15th Century. Only recently have many schools stopped teaching the art of kobudo.
At the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa, traditions live on and we practice many Okinawan
weapons and Japanese samurai weapons along with karate. Here Ryan Harden is training with Tonfa.
